Why Travel with Back-Roads

Maximum Group Size 18

With a maximum of 18 passengers, their professional tour leaders are able to offer a more personalised experience, with more attention to the interests of individuals and flexible touring days

Scenic Back Roads not freeways

Back-Roads touring mini-coaches can travel along local roads and across breath-taking mountain passes, to find charming villages and picturesque vistas which lie beyond the well-worn tourist trails, and reach places where large motor coaches cannot go

Charming Accommodation

They choose charming accommodation to reflect the character of the region you visit, from a French chateau, to a small country inn. Every style of accommodation is in keeping with its surrounds and brings more authenticity to the itinerary

Authentic Local Experiences

Back-Roads touring recognise that authentic local experiences have greater appeal than attractions on the typical tourist trail. They take the time to seek out experiences where the guests can relate to local crafts and culture

Culinary Experiences

Leisurely Paced Itineraries

"Superb trip, will thoroughly recommend the tour and will look forward to our next tour with your company. Giovanni was great. His nature and kindness was outstanding and he looked after us all, nothing was ever a bother - he could accommodate all requests. Thank you, thank you! I loved travelling the back roads and going to small villages. My favourite authentic local experiences were Chipping Campden - wonderful 2 nights stay and food at the Abbey Hotel - superb."

- Julie Sprunt, New South Wales, Australia

“I have travelled before on a typical large group tour. Travelling in a small group was much better. I especially liked the smaller number of 13 passengers. Having experienced the tour I appreciated staying in hotels with local décor and within the old areas of the cities we visited. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. My favourite local experience was the Flamenco Show in Seville."

- Philip Crowther, Victoria, Australia

"Everything was run at a leisurely pace, which allowed us to truly appreciate the scenery and the fact that we could stop along the way to take pictures when we wanted to. Yann added to the enjoyment with his humour, consideration and being there for any questions and translations. The highlight of my tour was The Chateaus, Monets' Garden - My favourite local experience was the picnic lunch, with local cheese and wines."

- Vicki Jones, Queensland, Australia

"After an exhausting few weeks of touring I appreciated the leisurely pace and authenticity of the Backroads tour. The driver + guide enhanced the tour- local knowledge, humour, caring and very well prepared. Excellent! Good team work. The charming accommodation and the different types of hotels gave a unique flavour to the tour- an authentic touch, often not gained when staying at larger hotels catering for the tourists. A wonderful tour, thank you!”

- Janet Brand, South Australia, Australia

"I have just finished my first of three Back-Roads tours and it was absolutely awesome! I feel that because we were in a smaller bus, we were able to go to different places and in my opinion even better locations. On this tour I really got a feel for Scotland not just the usual spots and highways. There were so many wow moments...all of the Skye portion was incredible, especially the Quiraing, Old Man of Stor, Kilt Rock, the Kelpies ....They were all fabulous and our tour leader Tom was fantastic! Tom was incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about Scotland. He shared his love of this country and left me loving it too! He was attentive to all of us and very respectful and kind. The group really came together with Tom as the nucleus. He also had a way of making us feel laid back and relaxed yet still keeping to a schedule. He had a great sense of humour. I am very glad to have found Back-Roads ...."
